On Marriott International's web site, the group's 31 brands are presented in their totality with a segmentation into two major categories and three levels of sophistication. A long effort to differentiate has been undertaken for all the brands to justify their positions on the table.
A second differentiation characterizes them within each major category depending on the level of service: Luxury, Premium and Select. A third distinction separates short-stay hotels from long-stay concepts such as residence hotels. The result is a table with three entries, a new matrix that acts as a basis for marketing teams to refiner the presentation and differentiation of each.
